Giraffe skirt!

I found a super cute skirt tutorial online. And then I found some pretty giraffe fabric. I combined this super cute skirt tutorial with the pretty giraffe fabric and ended up with this: (I decided to try to figure it out myself instead of following the instructions. Well, the pockets are too tight and the zipper wasn't exposed enough.)

I do like the back! My zipper was too short to go the entire length of the back, like the one online, so I added a gore insert and a cute tab.

The black w/ white is the cute skirt I found online. CHALK LINES SKIRT

I wore pants Wednesday. I was working in the warehouse all day, so it was a necessity.

I have a small temporary job sewing on an amazing industrial sewing machine! a JUKI:

I am sewing a newly designed, upgraded harness radio strap for firemen for this company:
 S&S Medical Supplies
here is the strap I am sewing: (pic is a link)

Today I made 2 batches of almond butter. There isn't a fridge in the warehouse and I will be sewing there all day tomorrow. i wanted some almond butter roll-ups.
I made one creamy, salted batch...and one crunchy maple batch:
pictured is the crunchy batch with maple syrup!

Another Rainy Day!

Is it Still Raining?

Maybe it will clear soon...

NO PANTS APRIL: day 7  features a skirt I bought in Hong Kong, about 10 years ago. I liked the fun, unique waist panel with the ribbon lacing!

 I should wear this skirt more often. It's high-waisted. I don't wear a lot of high-waisted things.


I have not been documenting No Pants April very well this year.

here is my NoPants Outfit today: workout skirt.

 not very pretty skirt, but I gotta keep in shape at least one day a week.

 I was looking for posts from No Pants April last year...NONE! None, I tell you!  How am I to get the word out to everyone on the internet if I don't  bother posting about the No Pants April challenge?? I did find a few pictures on Instagram from last year, though....

I will do better this year.

my Friend, KRISTY @THE MAN CREW , is also joining the NO PANTS APRIL challenge (for the 2nd time!)- so go over to her page and tell her how pretty she is in her lovely skirts and dresses!

No Pants for me!

Welcome to No Pants April, episode 2!  Last year was so much fun, not only am I doing it again, but I made 3 new skirts for this years events! Links: skirt #1, skirt #2, skirt #3

Good news! It's not too late to join in the fun. And all the guys are invited to wear kilts for equality's sake. the rules are simple. Whenever you leave the house and have a choice of what to wear, don't choose pants. if your work requires pants then obviously does not fit the portion of when you have a choice of what to wear. Going to the park? Going for a jog? Going to Starbucks for a cup of coffee and a scone? Don't wear pants. feel free to take pictures and if you use Instagram you can take them with #NoPantsApril or #NoPantsApril2015.
Join the fun now! Stop wearing pants and start taking pictures!
